I’ve always been a car guy, and especially cars that race, being I’m a huge Nascar fan. So when my wife asked me the other day what are the fastest cars in the world, it got me thinking what a fun blog post that would be for others who don’t know. Now these cars are based solely on production. It’s hard to measure the fastest car because there are super cars made out there, cars hopped up on nos and other gadgets to make them go fast. But if you are strictly speaking about production cars that are edged to drive. Then these are the fastest five I can think of that make mock speed look like something out of a movie!
1. Bugatti Super Sport
Fastest road-legal car in the world and boy is it sweet! Acceleration from 0-60 in 2.4 seconds, the engine is four bi-turbochargers with four valves that equals 64 vales giving it the boost and power that is beyond belief. Mixed with a V8 engine (like a couple of them) that generates 1200 hp giving it a top speed of 267 mph.
2. Koenigsegg Agera R
This bad boy reaches speeds of 260 mph and is manufactured in Sweden. It goes from 0-60 in 2.9 seconds and can reach up to 200 mph in 17 seconds. That’s fast! It has a 5.0 liter, V8 twin turbo engine that produces over 1100 hp. The cost of this fast beast? Oh more than you and I could make in a million lifetimes. $1,600,000
3. Hennesey Venom GT
A beautiful car that will certainly travel through hyper space, it reaches 0-60 to 2.5 seconds and speed of 260 mph. Best part is it costs less than a million dollars, how sweet of them, right? It has a 6.2 liter, LS9 Turbocharged, V8 Twin Turbo engine that produces 1200 hp. Some say it can reach 275 mph.
4. 9ff GT9-R
This one is for Porsche lovers is the fastest one in the world reaching 257 mph and goes from 0-60 in 2.9 seconds, man that’s fast. I can only image how this baby corners. It has a 4.0 Twin Turbo Engine and produces 1100 hp. It comes with a price tag of $670,000
5. Saleen S7 Twin Turbo
Has a V8 Engine with 750 hp and boasts a speed of 248 mp and goes from 0-60 in less than 2.8 seconds which is impressive. Also impressive is how it looks. It’s a sweet looking car and not bad for $500,000.
There are a few others that could be mentioned in this category. Such as the SSC Aero, Zento STI, and the Astin Martin, all of which are pretty great looking, sleek vehicles. Anyone of them and I’d be heaven to take one for a spin.
What’s your favorite fast car?
